I did some Google searching on how to do this and found it hard to get a clear answer. In help > rstudio I can see that I am on version 1.2.1335.
On a separate issue I was having I found some online suggestions telling me to use a more recent rstudio version.
I'm running hosted rstudio community edition on a Linux server, Red Hat. In the help menu, there is no update option. Sounds like there are in some cases, perhaps on different platforms, but not on my instance:
I did a search on this site but was unable to find anything, perhaps I'm using the wrong search term: https://community.rstudio.com/search?q=update%20rstudio%20linux
I also did some Google searching but the results were crowded out either with instructions on how to update packages else instructions on how to update rstudio using the help menu.
How should I update rstudio to the latest version?
